    I use this foundation daily. I love the way it goes on. The only negative I hAve is this makeup is hard to get in the store. I always have to travel to another store to get it. The stores closet to me are always out.

          I liked the packaging and the ease of use of the bottle, but the make-up did not cover any flaws in the skin no matter how many layers you put on.

          It blends great and is very light. It looks natural and mattifies pretty good. However, I break out very bad anytime I wear it.

              I came in to replace my makeup that I was running out of. When I got to the store, I was told that the shade that I wear had been discontinued and that the shade above that one looked great on me. As I got ready to use it and added my other makeup, I realized that it was too light for my skintone.

                  Oxidized so bad that I looked like I had a terrible spray tan. Shoddy coverage. If you tried to build to more coverage, it would clump. Did not blend well. It left me so oily. Normally, I will touch up my make up once after the initial application; but with this, I was touching up 4 times a day! Even with a primer (I use smash) it was a fight to keep on. Would not buy again. Such a shame that the store in my town would not let me return it even after one application. Not worth the money.

                      Warm Vanilla (2) is ideal for those who wear shade 1.2 in Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation.

                      Smashbox does not claim that this product is noncomedogenic.

                  • Q:

                    I used High Definition Health FX foundation in Light L3 for years and it seems to be discontinued. The website suggested I look at this product. Is it comparable coverage? I'm concerned that the SPF will cause the white face flash that the Healthy FX did not. I'm also curious about which shade would be comparable. Thanks!

                      A:

                      This foundation provides buildable sheer-to-medium coverage. All Smashbox products are photo-tested in a professional studio environment to ensure their finishes photograph beautifully (no "flashback" effect).

                      Use our handy shade conversion chart to determine your best shade match:

                      We suggest shade 4 for those who used L3.

                  • Q:

                    I really like the smashbox BB cream, but I want something with just a little more coverage for events, date nights, and etcetera. I wear the light/medium in the BB cream and that is a pretty close match to my skin tone. So, what would be my best match for the Liquid Halo HD Foundation Broad Spectrum?

                    I am in the "seasoned women" category. Does this foundation settle in to fine lines and/or areas around the eyes emphasizing lines and creases?
